NYCDOE: Wellness Wednesdays initiative

Dear PS 101 Families:

The DOE has begun a Wellness Wednesdays initiative in an effort to assist students, their families, and educators in developing skills to maintain their physical, mental, and emotional well-being during remote learning.

Wellness Wednesdays uses a skills-based, whole-child approach that promotes accessible and actionable resources, as well as student-facing activities, which can help young people become healthy, focused, and ready to learn now, but also when they return to their school communities.

The core question grounding this initiative—how do we take care of ourselves and take care of others during difficult times—is explored each week through a specific theme that includes a complementary student/family activity, along with supporting resources and an in-home-fitness video.

Please visit the Wellness Wednesday family-facing webpage each week, and join in sharing these mental health and wellness activities.
